Again, every single major attack on Western soil has been committed by terrorists who were radicalized here in the West. Assholes like John MacGuire who started out as perfectly normal Western kids but are now dead jihadis. He didn’t grow up in a suburb like mine. He grew up in the exact same suburb. If it was 1985, he’d have a mohawk.
The idiot Westerner’s embrace of Islam demonstrates a critical failure of “cool.”
I can understand why dopey whites embrace black culture, be it Mailer’s “hipster” or Black Power or rap: It looks great and has fun lingo and a pretty good soundtrack if you like that sort of thing.
But Islam, with the ratty beards and ugly clothes? WTF?
I always remind people that “‘cool’ is not a Christian virtue” and that we shouldn’t judge everything based on its shallow, even decadent standards.
But if society has lost the ability to at least predict youth-rebellion behavior based on the power of “cool” then all bets are off.
